this has to do with the fiscal cliff given the fact there are government programs that will be going away at year end. is some of this in anticipation in terms of business going away? >> you know, my opinion, the answer to that question is no. i read a lot of the ceo's remarks in the press release. when you're looking at the shanghai index of china in general, fedex, caterpillar, this is a trend, and i don't think it has to do with what could be affected by the fiscal cliff. our last guest who made fun of the guidance out that far, did he have the same thing when the federal reserve and central bankers seemed to have some way to see in their crystal ball 2 1/2 to 4 years down the road? >> stealing my thunder, rick. >> let me counter that quickly. central bank concerns about deflation is very real. whether it's actually going to happen or not is irrelevant. this is about incentives. central banks have zero incentive to see a repeat. they will force reflation as much as they can globally to prevent that event. >> yeah, i want to pick up with that 2015 theme because i can't imagine you would

nationwide, including government employees, from some reports. that number may be a bit inflated. the reports are coming from industry. we question whether or not there's a bias to those reports. >> the timing -- you're item id -- itemizing. this is before congress goes back to work to fix this crisis. is it possible notices go out when they do just to highlight what could happen as a scare tactic to get congress back to work? >> congress is already on a recess. they're on a recess all the way through the elections. actually, the government employee union has a 90-day notice policy, which would actually go out at the beginning of october. so the dates are kind of insignificant at this point. we're looking more at the nominal dollar effect, the total addressable market shrink for the defense market. it's going to be quite significant. >> i look at it the other way, actually. initially, i thought they had to tell employees by october 1st. so if it was october 1st, by the time the election came around, it would be out there. you can hide it if you go -- by november 2nd, you might get away with i

, problems in congress, problems with tax code, the problems in our government, the administration. also, listen, bernanke said -- >> maria, the fact that everyone's saying -- >> we didn't see 2008 coming either. >> the fact that everyone is saying qe is not having any effect means that they really are missing the boat. there was $3 trillion worth of corporate issuance in the year to date so far. $1 trillion worth of bonds were sold by corporations. that reduces, obviously, betters their balance sheets, reduces their rates so for the next ten years these corporations are going to be having the benefit of cheap money. 150 or 100 basis points over treasuries to issue cash, that's a great deal. using that money to buy back stock, using that money to pay dividends. tom lee had a great piece that said the outstanding shares of the new york stock exchange are as low as they have been in 1990. what's happening is you have a run-up to qe. the market anticipates that so of course the response is going to be muted to the qe. subsequent months later we then see the market continue to grind higher.
